    Australians should adapt to their nation's changing foreign relations.

    This sounds a bit political.
    Aussies will not be happy with this. Specially after Sachin openly supported Harbhajan in the "Monkey" episode.

    Sachin Tendulkar receives Order of Australia

    NEW DELHI: India's batting legend Sachin Tendulkar was on Tuesday conferred with the membership of Order of Australia. Tendulkar, who is also a Rajya Sabha MP, is only the second Indian after former Attorney General Soli Sorabjee to get the honour.

    Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard on October 16, during her visit to India, had announced that Tendulkar would be conferred the membership of the Order of Australia.

    The 'Order of Australia' is an order of chivalry to recognise Australian citizens and other persons for achievement or for meritorious service. The 39-year-old Tendulkar will be awarded an AM, which is one of the six grades in the Order of Australia.

    Sorabjee was made an Honorary Member of the Order of Australia (AM) "for service to Australia-India bilateral legal relations" in 2006.

    Tendulkar, however, is not the first non-Australian cricketer to be made an Order of Australia AM as in 2009, West Indies legend Brian Lara was also made an honorary member for his service to Australia-Caribbean relations by promoting goodwill, friendship and sportsmanship through the sport of cricket.

    Another West Indies legend, Clive Lloyd, is an Honorary Officer in the Order of Australia, having been conferred the award way back in 1985. Another West Indian, Sir Garfield Sobers, was also made a member of the Order of Australia in 2003.

    The right-handed Tendulkar, considered the finest batsman in contemporary cricket, has 15,533 runs in 190 Tests besides a mammoth 18,426 runs in 463 ODIs. He also has a record 100 international centuries to his credit.
